*Star Wars Fan Friday*
This week I am proud to share something extraordinary with you, the incredible artwork of Chris Baker, Cjb Art. Chris was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome and left school when he was 14. He taught himself to draw, surprising his parents with his ability to create highly detailed images which look exactly like photographs.
Chris has created every image you see here himself, by hand, with a pencil. No Photoshop or computer software was involved, everything has been created on a simple piece of paper. He works from his home studio on his latest inspired work, or commission piece. Chris has had the opportunity to meet many of his subjects in real life including Sir Ian McKellan, and his lifelong favourite band, The Jacksons when he presented them with a stunning portrait of The Jackson Five. To experience the unbelievable detail of these images in person, you can go to Film & Comic Con Birmingham this weekend and get yourself something truly special. You can learn more about Chris and purchase his beautiful work via his website https://www.cjbart.com/
